The City Clerk’s Division ensures timely filing of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Statement of Economic Interests forms (SEI Form 700). The Political Reform Act requires public officials to disclose assets and income that may be materially affected by their official actions. The Act requires governmental agencies to ensure that their public officials (board/commission members, employees, and consultants) disclose their interests on or before the statutory deadline. Filing officers (City Clerk’s Division) must supply a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) to those officials who have assuming, initial, annual, and leaving office filing obligations, as well as notify filers who have failed to file. These guidelines provide a suggested timeline for notifications to individuals who must file an annual Statement of Economic Interests. An enforcement referral must be made if a statement is not filed, and suggested procedures are provided.
For more information, please visit City of Merced Conflict-of-Interest Code (Resolution 2018-80; Adopted 12-3-18).
